that show a two-pronged attack on violent crime would be successful in america, producing violent crime by as much as 50% with life sentences for career criminals. for example, under the armed career criminal bill, and we passed the second chance act, the biden specter bill, the president signed it last year. it seems to me that we need more funding on detoxification, job traini training, re-entry. no surprise when a functional illiterate leaves prison without a trade or skill, they go back to a life of crime. i would like you to take a look at that. i would also like you to take a look at the issue on attacks on prison guards. there's been a rash of them because of the very substantial overcrowding. i wrote to the director of the federal bureau of prisons who i know is doing an excellent job with some suggestions about giving the guards some protective measures. some suggestions have been made about pepper spray, some suggestions have been made about break-away batons, stab-proof vests. i would appreciate it fld take a look at those items and others which could provide safeguards for p

of america saw the document but did not show us they did any analysis to make up for merrill commissions. on the contrary, the evidence we have suggests that bank of america pulled a number out of thin air. far from being consistent with the actual experience of october or what they knew about the third quarter, the guess, wistfully assumed that the markets for collateralized debt obligation and credit default swaps would be significantly better in november and december. it was assumed that merrill lynch would almost break even for november. then the attorneys at bank of america went to work. they did not question the financial information they were given. . e financial information they were given. they begin with the assumption additional shareholder disclosure was necessary and they discussed what kind of exposure they would make but after studying the question for a week they decided the news was not sufficiently out of line from past performance than previous disclosures to warrant further shareholder disclosure. the sunmaid icuf council bank of america did not make any further discl

stretched america's frontiers to the pacific ocean. back to the battle of trenton for a moment. as i said, monroe didn't cross the delaware on the same boat as washington. he crossed earlier with a squad that landed on the jersey shore to the north of trenton and circled behind the town while washington landed with his troops on the riverside below the town. now what makes trenton so important is that the british had almost won the war by christmas of 1776. their troops had overrun on the island, new york, westchester and most of new jersey. thousands of american troops had deserted and the british had chased the remnants of washington's army across new jersey over the delaware and in to pennsylvania. white coats were in sight of the american capital. congress had fled to baltimore and began debating terms of could the chelation -- capitulation. unless washington could come up with a miracle, and he chose a young college student, lieutenant james monroe, to help me cut miracle happen. they all crossed the delaware during a blinding snowstorm on christmas night only six months after we had
wheelchairs, taxing pacemakers, taxing hearing aids. this bill is not right for america, it's not right for families, it's not right for small businesses and it's not right for seniors. we need real solutions. let's focus on reducing the costs, maybe, offer tax incentives, enact medical liability reform, allow people to buy insurance across state lines. these solutions bring lower costs and bring health care to those who really need it. mr. speaker, the most troubling aspect, though, of this bill is that it takes away freedom. and this freedom, mr. speaker, the house is not in order. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is correct. the house will be in order. mr. reichert: mr. speaker, the most troubling aspect of this bill is that it takes away freedom. and this freedom came through great sacrifice. the sacrifice of men and women throughout history of this great nation so that we could choose and live a free life. this bill takes away that freedom, the freedom to choose the health care that's right for you and your family, this bill takes away that freedom requiring every american to

in america today. that massive change is because we have already turned over to the federal government most of our financial systems for them to be managing it. so they control our purse. this government controls the purse of america. and we have done that this year. it's there. we bailed people out. we are now voting members of financial organizations and businesses, like automobile firms. now we want to control the american people's purse. now we have to say to ourselves, well, what's going to happen when we do, when we create this great system, how do we know what it's going to look like? i want to use this, quite frankly but it's not fair because it's one-sided and this document is two-sided. but this document printed in smaller font is two-sided. here's what we have in the way of what the government needs to create for a health care plan. this is the substitute, the people's idea. it's the difference, ladies and gentlemen, between liberty and government. and you know, this week a whole lot of people came an awful long way so they could express their opinion and they were called radical
bankrupting america. guest: i think that the viewer's concerns reflect the concern that is widespread in the united states about national sovereignty, about control, and i do think that those concerns clash with the need to confront the problem. if in fact we do not address this problem in international and comprehensive way, how in the world do we address it? it may well be that the listeners was not believe in global warming, in which case -- it may well be that the listener does not believe in global warming, in which case he has nothing to worry about. if you believe that the emissions from china, india, and the united states contribute to global warming, it appears there is no other way to approach that issue then some kind of international agreement and some kind of enforcement. host:ueueueueueueueueueueueueueh warming, it appears there is no other way to approach that issue then some kind of international agreement and some kind of enforcement. host: dallas, roger, good morning. caller: good morning. man-made climate change, which which we have called global warming, has not be

ideas and find something that's right for america to lower the cost of health care, the pelosi health care bill is going to skyrocket health care, costs for everybody, skyrocket taxes and we've got to stop it and i yield back. . mr. gingrey: i wants to yield to dr. fleming if he has any concluding remarks and i welcome any of my colleagues who remain on the floor if you can. we have another 20 minutes and i would yield back to the gentleman from louisiana. mr. fleming: i thank the gentleman. yeah, to conclude my comments, i was comparing in contrasting the pelosi bill with the republican bill. the bottom line, mr. speaker, is, there's only two ways you can control cost. there is the nancy pelosi way where you have an extremely large governmental system that disconnects the patient and the doctor from the cost and it leaves it to the government. it leaves it to a very, very distant decision maker in the federal government to make decisions about our personal lives and put in force things that we have no control over. that's leading to rationing and long lines the way canada and the u.k

alaska governor, president obama's political group, organizing for america, is now waging war against her. now, according to abc news, they sent a letter to supporters asking for donations that will help them "push back against sarah palin who they call dangerous." it sounds loik president obama is -- like president obama is worried he may have some competition in the future. joining us with reaction it all of this, fox news anchor, analyst, kimberly guilfoyle and columnist s.e. cupp. ben nelson is going to go along with it. mary landrieu, according to jonathan karl, abc reporting, there is $100 million specific provision just for louisiana. i think she's gone. they bought her vote. prove me wrong. >> she got a much bigger bag to carry the loot. the $100 million on the taxpayers that we're going to have to pay to get this to go through. sean: can you imagine? they need her vote so bad they put in a provision just for louisiana. $100 million of your dollars. so the question is, is this not the moral equivalent of bribery? >> well, it is. it's pretty dirty stuff. but i'm hoping that -- ben
's look at the democratic primary voters. they are not the heartbeat of america. political parties -- they have certain beliefs. they are allowed to have beliefs. we have a large chunk of middle america -- they are not the same. the people who serve in the house and senate have ideology. we have resolution among these differences. but with 40 votes in the senate, 177 in the house, those people who have survived are not -- they are the people who feel most strongly about the size of government and we are not going to vote for these bills. olympia snowe is a good example. she has a great feeling about the center in maine. we have seen this since 1978. this number, this is 176. the republican vote came after 2018. he was with the leadership because he would not be there for 218. the public auction is the same thing that means that this is too much government health care. this is not acceptable for what we think should happen. mitt romney passed a mandate, and it said, you do not need this for public out -- for a public auction -- public option. >> is it possible for a president to hav
that we were going to make our products, our strings in america. we are still committed to that. we have never sold one string we didn't make here in new york. >> they have one of u.s. manufactu manufactures that have adopted the lean theory. they plan to do so or have implemented it. critics say the automation eliminates jobs. he says the replaced workers can be cross trained to do other jobs. >> we do not want to play people off because lean has been effective. that is not going to help people embracing lean or help our company or our community. what we are trying to do is take those people and train them to do something else. >> reporter: like work in the guitar strap division, part of a company he acquired several years ago. those jobs were previously in china. today, long island. economists say other companies can position themselves to bring jobs home. >> lean manufacturing makes it possible to create products in the united states efficiently, cost effectively and so forth. some manufacturing should be done in china. too much manufacturing is being done in china that could be done
are talking about a fundamental reset of the u.s. economy. that america was living high off the hog, american households and the whole country was living off of borrowed money and that this reset is going to mean people save more and people consume less and the economy grows more slowly and i think that's going to be a really wrenching social adjustment. >> you have identified one big issue in the jobs market and the problem we have got. the other one, bill, is that so many of these jobs that have been lost have been lost in manufacturing. and regardless of where you stand on whether we should have better manufacturing policy or we should manufacture more, the reality is manufacturing jobs, particularly lower paying jobs have left this country and higher paying ones have left this country. >> yes, we have major losses in manufacturing and major losses in construction and that's why we have seen men's unemployment rates rise faster than women's. we are a service based economy and particularly after november, october of 2008, this recession began to look like that garden variety recession where
one of the unique advantages that america has which is the fact that we are able to develop capital and credit in a way that allows people who want to go out and take risks and create jobs to get that capital and credit. that's something that no other nation has yet been able to replicate at the levels that we have been able to do it as a nation. and we have to be careful that responding to a dries sis which had a lot of underlying causes, that we don't fundamentally harm that unique advantage that america has. and so i guess that's how i come at this. so let's look at the causes that cause this crisis. we were all there on the front line when it collapsed on us. primarily it was real estate. it was a real estate bubble. now, i've been through three of these in my professional experien experience, once as a bank attorney for a small bank in new hampshire, once as governor of new hampshire when five of my seven largest banks failed and this time. in p every instance a real estate bubble is a function of the fact that there's a disconnect between underwriting and responsibility. loans
to insurance. we don't have two political parties in this country, america. we have one party called the big government party. the republican wing likes deficits, war and assaults on civil liberties. the democratic wing likes wealth transfer, taxes and assaults on commercial liberties. both parties like power, and neither is interested in your freedom. think about it. government is the negation of freedom. freedom is your power and ability to follow your own free will and your own conscience. the government wants you to follow the will of some faceless bureaucrat. when i recently asked congressman james clyburn, the third ranking democrat in the house, to tell me where in the constitution the federal government is awghtsized to regulate everyone's healthcare, he replied that most of what congress does is not authorized by the constitution but they do it anyway. there you have it. congress recognized no limits on its power. it doesn't care about the constitution. it doesn't care about your inalienablites. it doesn't care about the liberties protected by the bill of rights t doesn't even read

. think about this. finally people in america, if your kid gets sick, you're not going to be thrown off your health care coverage. if you've got a kid you want to keep on your health care coverage when they're in college until they're 26 years old, they can stay on your own family's health care coverage. you have all kinds of prevention provisions in there that really bring us to looking at health and not just health care and health insurance down the road. so i think the $127 billion saving on the deficit, you might says that's a conserve-a-dem issue. i think it should be for everyone in the country we finally have a bill that will save that much. we have a problem in this country that we've been able to put together a health care bill that brings us closer to bringing down the cost for health care, that will allow american companies to compete with companies in other countries, that allow small businesses who pay 20% more for their health care to finally be able to get some leverage so they can less expensive health care? that's what this bill is about. >> i didn't mean to imply that
will start off asking your reaction to comments by columnist who asks, could america go broke? the number -- host: you can reach us at twitter, c-spanwj is how you can do that. and you can e-mail us, it journal@c-span.org. and if you have called any of the c-span program in the last 30 days give someone else a chance. first, a look at the legislative business of the week. health care legislation gets teed up in the house. the front-page headline of "roll call." they write getting to the vote will require leaders to hurtle hangups over abortion and immigration language, moderates gripes on the overall cost of the bill, liberal demands for symbolic votes and their preferred provisions. also an unknown are re of parochial concerns. writing about the legislation coming up. host: that sent "will call." we will talk about this week and next week -- but our question this morning is more broadly on spending, based on a column that "could america go broke?" he writes this morning that the idea of a major advance country would default on its debt -- host: we will get more comments from this column
general motors and chrysler? governments don't own big companies in america. what ruptured? what ruptured is the concern that there is way too much in spending and to be fair, it's not the president's fault. but when you say -- and the combined the billions of dollars, there is one huge massive spending and as a stimulus package. . >> what happens is the republican party has a lot of troubles. we put on the brakes and send a missile. that was to park. -- that was too far. many private people said there will be a bill and we're better off negotiating in good faith because there is going to be a bill. what is going to happen is this possibility, which is the a.m .a is there because they thought they would get a deal. if it does not get fixed, i do not know where they will be. hospitals are there because they said they would have 9066%6% coverage. >> why do you think the industry support did not translate into republicans support? >> we're down to 170 boats. at 177 votes, the sport gentleman in new orleans. ok, we could lose that seat. at 177 seats, there are not a lot of seats you can lose.
